The Q&A Archives: Black Things In Crouch Of Lily Leaves

Question: I have noticed hundreds of black things about the size of a pencil eraser in the crouch of each leave running up the lily stalk. Are they seeds? If so, can they be planted, even though the lilies are planted by bulb?

Answer: Yes, they can be planted. In nature, the bulbils would be "planted" when they or the stalk itself fall to the ground.
